Dear Leo and Abby,

I want to join a hapless group of twentysomethings trying to save their favorite cafe from closure after reading…

Your comic has great characters that get into extra funny shenanigans. From cosplay, to candy dealing, to a crazy quiz bowl, to romance, to body issues, and insecurities. It has everything a twentysomething can relate to! I like how they all hang out and they feel like an honest friend group. There is some jealousy, anger, and sarcasm. There is plenty of love, laughs, and caring too! I really admire the way the group and their story is written.

The characters are really something special. They all are designed in a mindful way with consideration of their personalities. I like how diverse all the characters are and how we are slowly getting to know each one! I think Ebba is my favorite. So cute and buff! I think obviously Barry and Renee need to be together. I love how Sylvia is obsessed with food. I really enjoy how Evelyn is just mean! I am excited to see the turn Treeroot is about to take. That is, it seems like we are about to drive deeper into these characters and their insecurities, starting with Evelyn. I’m excited! I can not wait to learn more.

The art is amazing and the writing is awesome! You two make a great team!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Sarah Fowlie,

I have a lot of feelings about…

And here’s why: your characters are fudged up. All of em’! They are such complex and messed up characters that sometimes I question if Fritz is really the craziest or just truly a victim of it all. When I say fudged up, I pretty much mean human, but your characters seem to personify conflicting virtues and pose the question “what is really right or wrong?” Specifically with Fritz.  Yet, I think your most recent updates have shed some light on that for sure, but knowing your writing I expect even more to be piled on. I know you’ll deliver.

I usually do not write so…deeply? Truly your comic may be “dark” but there are so many glittery, hope-filled moments! Fritz is such a wild, and colorful character!! And the situations that happen because of him and around him just are unreal and hilarious at times! My favorite character of all though is Nemmi! She is a bad-butt, knows what she wants, and is pretty chill to a point.

I’m excited to read more and more of your comics until it’s sad end!! Who knows if it will actually be sad..or happy?! Either way, I can not wait to learn more about Fritz’s story. I worry about his and Eddie’s relationship being healthy? Since Eddie is infatuated with Fritz and seems to want to “fix” him.

Honestly, to close out my letter, I feel for Fritz. I don’t want to go into details, but I’ve been in similar situations as Fritz and reading your comic brought that stuff up for me. I haven’t been through what Fritz went through exactly, yet I see the characters around him and can compare them to people in my life. “The abuser”, “the fixer”, and etc. I just hope everything turns out okay for Fritz. I’ve gotten myself help and am doing great! I hope Fritz’s story will turn out similar. And if not, it will still always be a dang good story.

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer
